Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is an outstanding school.

The headteacher's excellent leadership is strongly supported by an effective deputy headteacher, very knowledgeable governors and by staff at every level in the school. Pupils achieve well and the profile is rapidly improving. Pupils make impressive gains in their personal and social development and in their speaking and listening skills to become confident, independent learners.

The curriculum is exceptionally well matched to the pupils' needs and provides pupils with a wide range of learning opportunities and experiences, including numerous exciting visits, clubs and activities. Pupils' behaviour and attitudes to learning are o...utstanding. Relationships are a real strength.

Pupils feel very safe and respect the staff, themselves and each other. The school provides pupils with an exceptionally caring and nurturing environment which is fully appreciated by parents and carers. Staff work very hard to ensure that the learning activities they provide are matched to the individual needs of pupils.

Outstanding teaching means that, after an excellent start in Reception classes, pupils continue to build on their skills year by year as they move through the school.
